Tesla Orchestra plays Zelda theme song

“Taking something where there’s chords and multiple melodies, you’ve got to pick and choose which ones you use for the coils,” Lewis said. “We pick out the main melody and usually the bass line or harmony line from the existing track and plug them into a standard MIDI track and send that information to the coils and then play the backing track along with it.”

The coils themselves were built by the Tesla Orchestra, which hails from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The machines are designed to emit bolts of electricity that match the notes on a keyboard.  -

The Möbius strip is a curved surface with only one side. Ants could walk along the surface, and eventually they would return to their initial position.

Giant Möbius strips have been used as conveyor belts that last longer because the entire surface area of the belt gets the same amount of wear. A device called a Möbius resistor is an electronic circuit element that has the property of canceling its own inductive reactiveness. Nikola Tesla patented similar technology in the early 1900s: “Coil for Electro Magnetswas intended for use with his system of global transmission of electricity without wires.
